Visit the local spa, relax in the beautiful gardens, play tennis, croquet, boules, quoits... the one thing we promise is that we won't discuss 'The World Cup'.
Ayrshire, Scotland (PRWEB) June 24, 2010
It is a fact: the World Cup in South Africa is enjoying more media coverage in the UK than any other World Cup. A recent media survey indicated that there was a 40% rise in coverage during the 1st week of the World Cup on the previous Tournament in Germany.
The record volume of media coverage has been aided by the introduction of the live streaming on the BBC and ITV web sites of matches and highlights. On UK television alone, there are over 9 hours of football coverage on the television every day.
The well documented annoyance from the public of this year's football tournament has been the incessant noise of 'killer mosquitoes' - the sound of the vuvuzela, the musical weapon of South Africa's football fans. The BBC recorded over 500 vuvezala related complaints from viewers during the first week of the World Cup.
Topping off the sound of mosquitoes with the tabloid papers' savaging of England's players and Italian manager Fabio Capello, it is not difficult to sympathise with the millions of citizens that dislike football.
Glenapp Castle, a luxury hotel in the beautiful South West of Scotland, is offering the perfect escape from the World Cup media frenzy. The hotel's owners, Graham and Fay Cowan, said that "we are aware that not everyone is interested in The World Cup or indeed football and would like to offer you an opportunity to 'escape'. Once through the castle gates, you won't even know that The World Cup is happening. And, if you want, we will even remove the TV from your room. We will leave you a pile of magazines, a game of Scrabble and a pack of cards in its place. You can visit the local spa, relax in the beautiful gardens, play tennis, croquet, boules, quoits or even giant 'pick-up-sticks' in the gardens or explore the beautiful Ayrshire and Galloway countryside at your leisure. The one thing we promise is that we won't mention 'The World Cup'."
Throughout The World Cup, Glenapp Castle is offering 'Escape the World Cup' Breaks. Any 2 nights midweek (Sunday - Thursday) until 13th July, rates are from £150.00 per person per night and include a AA 3 Rosette six course gourmet dinner, full Scottish breakfast and VAT.
